The U-Mich, to my knowledge, AND the example provided in the source are
the only decent resources to help folks use the shell backend.

The perl backend is EXPERIMENTAL (devel only).  I believe there is an example
there some where.

Of course, one shouldn't forget the TCL backend (devel only).  It's
likely the most "robust" of the three programmable backends.
